iOS video format criteria for Apple app store approval

January 12, 2015 12:25 pm

1 karma points

Here are the main considerations for encoding video for your iOS app, or your video is being used in an iOS / iTunes app that you would like to have available in the iTunes store:

If your app delivers video over cellular networks, and the video exceeds either 10 minutes duration or 5 MB of data in a five minute period, you are required to use HTTP Live Streaming. (Progressive download may be used for smaller clips.)

If your app uses HTTP Live Streaming over cellular networks, you are required to provide at least one stream at 64 Kbps or lower bandwidth (the low-bandwidth stream may be audio-only or audio with a still image).
